Sweet treats for the Holidays

Peppermint Chocolate Cookie Cups


– Store-bought cookie dough
– Milk chocolate chips
– Candy canes
– Aluminum foil

To assemble the cookie cup easier, add baking weights (like marbles) to the inside of the cup to prevent it from rising in the oven. The process of coating the inside with chocolate was quick and adding crushed peppermint gave a twist. The flavors paired well together, and this treat is a cute way to add flair to a classic holiday dessert.

Step 1: Create a mini cup by molding aluminum foil around a small glass. Line the inside of the aluminum with cookie dough and bake for 14 minutes at 350 degrees or until edges brown lightly.

Step 2: Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and coat the
inside of the cookie cups. Let it set, then dip the top of the cookie cup in the melted chocolate to form a layer around the top of the cup and sprinkle crushed candy cane on it.
